Scatologic Madness Possession & Brutal Decomposition - Split Tape (2011)
Scatologic Madness Possession is a goregrind band from Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil and Brutal Decomposition was a one-man goregrind/gorenoise project from Mexico. SMP is probably the better known of the two projects and has been playing raw, primitive, old-school goregrind/grindcore since 2002. Their sound is reminiscent of the 1990s classics, often doing covers of bands which reflect this well, like Napalm Death, Agathocles, Unholy Grave, Rot, Regurgitate, Gut, Haemorrhage, etc.
Brutal Decomposition isn't as well known and unfortunately, didn't seem to last very long. Their sound on this tape is a little bit different than that of the other releases (most of which sound like drum machine driven noisecore bursts, reminiscent of Spanish acts like Jangle or Potabilizadora but with splattery goregrind vocals. The material on this tape, however, could bee described as very raw, messy chaotic goregrind or bordering gorenoise. The works of the Dutch label, Mangled Maggot Stew, (who was run by Rogier Kuzee) comes to mind, baring many similarities to Trauma-Team!, early Intumescence or a slower Anal Birth with real drums.
In conclusion, I think this split is really awesome and a nice pairing of bands. The split was put out by Sonic Arse Tapes, an Italian D.I.Y. gore/noise/grind label ran by Andrea Laurenti until just recently. You should check out his new exciting label, Ecclesia Inferi Records, which is putting out a lot of gorenoise as of late
